President Donald Trump started off the week by attacking NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace, accusing Wallace of a “hoax” after a suspected noose was found hanging in his garage at Alabama’s Talladega Superspeedway a couple of weeks ago. The President also criticized NASCAR for banning the Confederate flag in his Tweet early Monday morning.

On June 21st, NASCAR officials found the noose and informed Wallace of its existence about a week after it banned the racist Confederate flag from events.

Veteran Nascar writer Jeff Gluck immediately fired back at President Trump over his comments.
